Byers-Evans House

1310 Bannock St., Denver, CO 80204

The Byers-Evans House Museum is a historic house museum in Denver. It was built in 1883 by William Byers, the founder of the Rocky Mountain News. It was sold to William Gray Evans in 1889. It is an Italianate style house which had several additions made to it over the years. The house was donated to the Colorado Historical Society in 1981, along with the entire contents of the house. The house has been restored to the 1912–1924 period and includes approximately 90 percent of the original furniture, glassware, china, and other household items belonging to the Evans family. Guided house tours are offered; the museum may not be viewed by self-guided tour.
